More About Coach Shang

I have over 20 years of coaching experience working with both male and female players of all ages ranging from 8 to over 50. I teach skills using the motor skill learning approach followed by the USA Volleyball Coaching Accreditation Program.

My experience and expertise range from teaching the fundamental skills to beginners in the sport as well as advanced techniques and tactics to the more experienced and elite players. Players learn correct armswing mechanics for the overhand serve that enable them to progress to the more advanced jump float and jump spin serves. Similarly, sound attacking armswing and approach fundamentals enable players to develop powerful spikes. Ball control skills in terms of forearm pass, overhand pass and setting are taught in an easy to learn fashion. Game-like principles drive the process by which skills are taught and how the player learns each skill.

Volleyball skill specific warm ups are used to maximize the time spent learning. I use a ball cart with at least 16 Molten volleyballs suited to the gender and age of the player being trained to again maximize the time spent learning and minimize the time chasing balls. Video analysis using the Dartfish software package is available including StroMotion.

Very technical coach my daughter continues to learn each time they have a session.

Coach Shang is a great teacher and provides precise and clear instructions that resulted in a noticeable difference in my daughter's performance. I highly recommend his services.

With just 2 sessions I already see an improvement. Coach Shang was able to show her the proper technique with serving and hitting and confidence has already increased. I definitely plan on continuing sessions with Coach Shang and think these private lessons will transform her as a player.

Very good coach great at explaining everything and breaking every thing down step by step definitely will recommend

My daughter had first session with coach Shang and he was great. He clearly understands the game and can easily spot problems in technique and form. We will definitely do more sessions in near future.

Coach Shang is a positive minded professional who has alot of experience in coaching and teaching, who never lets you feel like your not getting anywhere. He is able to change the exercises/drills based on how to handle and react to one drill or another. This allows both the coach and the player find ways to improve the players performance. Coach Shang is an excellent coach and I will definitely continue to learn as much as I can from him!

In the first lesson he helped my daughter gain some confidence and realize she can improve.

Coach Shang was very patient and understanding with my daughter who had been out of commission for a few months. We will be using him on the regular.

Shang was amazing.... very patient and clear with his instructions. Thank you for helping us find such an amazing coach!

Today was my daughter's 1st session with Coach Shang and she thoroughly enjoyed the one-on-one training. She really liked the way he explained each skill and patiently worked with her. She's already asking when can she sign up for more sessions.
Thank you Coach Shang!

Coach Shang really knows his stuff. My 14 year had just one session to help prep for high school tryouts and I'm so surprised at how much she learned in 1 hour. His coaching style and guidance were so helpful, he really explained everything he was teaching her and why certain techniques made a difference. Wish I had started her sooner with Coach Shang!

Coach Shang really relates to the player, and is honest about talent and amount work your child will need to do. He has awesome training techniques and good drills to help your child work get stronger in their weakest areas. He helps build consistency in your child's performance. He also keeps the parents advised an your child's progress. I strongly recommend him to anyone.

Within ten minutes of meeting my daughter, Coach Shang had clearly assessed her strengths and weaknesses. He was patient and encouraging and gave her the first real session I have seen her get in setting fundamentals. She started applying what she learned a couple of hours later in group clinic. She can't wait for her next session and I can't wait to see her progress.

Great session! Great Coach! Improved my serves and hits.

After just one session, I can already see the difference in my daughter. Coach Shang was great with Camryn - very patient and very methodical, taking the time to not just make corrections but to explain the "how's" and "why's" and the mechanics of everything she was doing. We've already scheduled more sessions and Camryn is looking forward to learning as much as she possibly can!

Coach Shang is great to work with! His explanations are easy to understand and has patience when teaching skills. Corrections to play are given n a positive and encouraging manner. I do not hesitate in recommending Coach Shang!

Coach Shang gives easy to follow instructions and explains why something should be done a certain way. My daughter enjoyed working with him and looks forward to her next session.

Great great lesson!!!! My daughter enjoyed it!!

Coach Shang is very knowledgeable about volleyball and is a great instructor. I recommend highly and am driving over an hour each way for his instruction for my 15 year old new volleyball playing son.

Coach Shang is an excellent coach. He jumped right in with my daughter on the very first night. Not only does he teach techniques and fundamentals, but explains to the students why and how it is done that way. He drills on each technique until the student is confident. He has a way of delivering confidence for students.

He is so patient and a great coach...

My daughter had her first session last night. We were very impressed. I wish I had went ahead and bought a package to save a little money but we are setting up 2 more sessions before high school tryouts. She came out sweaty and red faced and said he was very knowledgeable. We are very pleased.

My daughter had the opportunity to work with Coach Shang. He is very knowledgeable about volleyball. He used his volleyball techniques to help my daughter work on serving, setting, and passing the ball. He is very good!!

Coach Shang definitely knows the nuaunces of the game, and instructed technique with patience. My 16 year-old son received great value from the session while Shang observed, while critiquing and practicing along the way. I'd recommend everyone to have their VB player personally assessed and instructed by Shang. Just wish he lived closer!

Coach Shang is an awesome coach, he truly showed and proved his 20 years of coaching. My daughter learned more in 1 session with Coach Shang than with her club in a year. He was patient and gave great technical guidance. My daughter left Coach Shang training improved; I will schedule more sessions.

We are looking forward to working with Coach Shang to help my 13 year old daughter improve her volleyball skills. He is responsive, can quickly assess the players needs, is patient and encouraging. It was apparent after the first session that he knows the game well and the technical skills that go with it. Highly recommend!

Coach Shang is a great coach . After one session my daughter learned a lot and knew where was her weakness . We definitely recommend him to our friends.

Coach Shang did a terrific job assessing the players' strengths and weaknesses and then providing clear instructions on how to improve. We liked that he also explained WHY to do certain things.

Coach Shang is really good. He takes notes, provides feedback and drills the right moves effectively. I would highly recommend him.

Coach was extremely knowledgeable in volleyball techniques as a whole. My daughter has been playing in school and club for 5 years. She needed tweeking in the area of setting more accurately.

Great first session. My daughter has not played before except in PE and Coach Shang met her right where she was with basic skills and mechanics. Most importantly (to me) he was encouraging, which means that she will be more likely to keep trying and will gain confidence as she gains more skill. We have already signed up for more sessions.

Coach Shang is a great motivator! My daughter responds better to encouragement than criticism. He is a great example of progress thru positive reenforcwment.

Coach Shang is a great coach with experience and expertise in his volleyball department. He is able to teach many different levels and has drills and fun games depending on the level of competitiveness. Would definitely recommend Coach Shang.

Coach Shang is great! He has a keen attention to detail and gives concrete feedback allowing me to see my strengths and weaknesses as well as where I need to improve. He is very patient and consistent in showing his commitment to my success. He strives to keep me focused in my training and outside of my training by suggesting "homework" for me to practice between sessions. I appreciate his overall knowledge and dedication to training me.

This is the first session with Coach Shang. For each specific skills my daughter wants to learn and improve, Coach Shang demonstrated and explained very well and pointed out the right way to work on. The detailed after session notes from Coach Shang is especially helpful. Coach Shang is truly a great coach. I would recommend Coach Shang to anyone.

My daughter had a purposeful and educational session with Coach Shang! He assisted Madison with serving, hitting, and setting. He also focused on proper footing and correct arm placement for return service. I am so happy that we found Coach Shang through Coach Up and we will definitely be back so he can continue to strengthen her skills in volleyball!
Thank you!

Coach Shang is a patient teacher. In three sessions, he has started to improve my daughter's skills in all the fundamentals of the game.

Coach Shang is does a great job in teaching proper technique and developing good volleyball habits. He also is very responsive in setting up sessions and answering questions. A bonus is after our initial session is we received a synopsis of the training and goals. My daughter says, "It's helping Mom!" And that is all I need to hear!

I highly recommend Coach Shang. After a session I feel like I have learned a lot. He knows his stuff and is good about showing how to do something, not just talking about it. He is patient so that you can learn how to do something and not get frustrated if you don’t get it right the first time. Coach Shang is a great coach.

Although we have only had one lesson, our daughter seems to have improved her serving consistency following the initial session.
Coach Shang’s calm demeanor and positive reinforcement when conveying information while evaluating and correcting my daughter’s play was well received. On her way home, she actually stated, “she learned more in an hour than she had previously learned in weeks of practice”.
We highly recommend Coach Shang to anyone seeking to improve his or her game.

Coach Shang is an excellent coach! Once your skills set level and aria of improvement is determined, Shang is patient and persistent in improving your volleyball technique, tailoring his coaching towards your individual needs. As a result - every session is efficient and leads to notable improvement. I would highly recommend working with Mr. Shang!

Coach Shang came highly recommended, and we are so happy to have gotten some of his time. He is terrific, an excellent teacher – very technical and breaks everything down! My daughter is in high school and would like to play in college. Coach Shang gave an honest evaluation of her skills, and we appreciated greatly the detailed write up that he provided after each lesson, assessing what she needed to improve and what she was doing well. He also taught here some new skills to add to her arsenal.

Coach Shang's expertise provided BreAna greater confidence in her outside hitting, serving and returning high speed balls. This was accomplished in one session. She further understands the dynamics of how to hit, serve and position herself. BreAna is excited about her upcoming sessions as she moves forward to working with Coach Shang.
